Khalistani Extremist stopped Indian High Commissioner from Entering a Gurdwara in Scotland

In a recent and alarming incident, the Indian High Commissioner to the UK, Vikram Doraiswami, found himself at the center of a security breach when he was stopped from entering a gurdwara in Scotland by Khalistani extremists. This event has added fuel to an already fiery controversy, with Canada accusing India of involvement in the killing of terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar.

The Confrontation at Glasgow Gurdwara

The incident unfolded at the Glasgow Gurdwara on Albert Drive, where Mr. Doraiswami had been invited by the gurdwara managing committee. A purported video of the incident has gone viral on social media, shedding light on the confrontation. In the video, a pro-Khalistan activist can be seen blocking the High Commissioner’s path as he attempts to enter the gurdwara.

Attempted Car Door Entry

The video captures the tense moments when two men, including the pro-Khalistan activist, approach the High Commissioner’s car, parked in the premises. One of the men attempts to open the car door, but it is locked from the inside. The high commissioner’s car is subsequently seen leaving the gurdwara premises, evading the brewing chaos.

Threats to Gurdwara Managing Committee Staff

A more extended version of the video reveals the extent of the threats posed by the Khalistani extremists. They can be seen menacingly approaching the gurudwara managing committee staff, who were presumably caught in the crossfire of this alarming situation.

The Indian Government’s Response

At the time of this writing, there has been no immediate official reaction from the Indian government. Given the nature of the incident and its implications for the security of the high commissioner, sources suggest that a police complaint has been filed. The incident raises serious concerns about the safety and security of Indian diplomats abroad.

The Background: Canada’s Accusations and India’s Response

This incident is not isolated but rather comes in the wake of a simmering controversy between India and Canada. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau alleged that “Indian government agents” were involved in the killing of terrorist Hardeep Singh Nijjar. India swiftly rejected Trudeau’s charges, dismissing them as “absurd” and demanding evidence to support the claim.

An Intelligence Alliance’s Involvement

Reports have suggested that Trudeau’s accusations were not made in isolation but were based on information shared among an intelligence alliance that includes the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Despite the shared intelligence, India maintains its innocence and, in turn, accuses Canada of providing a safe haven for terrorists.

Rising Tensions and Past Confrontations

Tensions between India and Canada have been mounting, especially since Prime Minister Narendra Modi confronted Trudeau over the rising secessionist activities in Canada during a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Delhi. In 2018, India reportedly handed Trudeau a list of nine Khalistani operatives, further straining the diplomatic relationship between the two nations.

The incident involving the Indian High Commissioner’s confrontation with Khalistani extremists at a gurdwara in Scotland raises serious concerns about the safety of Indian diplomats abroad and adds a new layer of complexity to the ongoing dispute between India and Canada. As both nations grapple with the aftermath of these allegations and incidents, diplomatic relations hang in the balance, and the international community watches closely.
